“Side Show” is a creepy adventure at a carnival side show. The twist on this is a kind of Hotel California story…you can come in but you can never leave! Alan’s drill includes a barker (perhaps with a large megaphone) to lure patrons in to witness the wonderful and bizarre sights of the side show.
Your art department (and parents) will have a field day creating backdrops that are reminiscent of carnival side shows from days gone by. Imagine oversized and faded props of “The Bearded Lady”, “World’s Strongest Man”, “The Two-headed Goat” and other oddities. Your costumes could also portray a side show that has seen better days. You could outfit each performer in a different costume or the battery as customers and the pit as side show performers. Be sure to have a talent scout check out your students to see if you have any hidden talents that can be utilized such as juggling, tumbling, or squeezing through hoops!
Sound effects are available for most shows on our website. For most MSC and Center X Shows, the files are delivered at no additional charge as a Run Audio FX app file (requires purchase of app subscription) or $100 for separated sound files.* Availability/cost for sound effects or narration varies with each publisher/partner on our site.
For more information about Run Audio Fx, visit www.runaudiofx.com and test drive the app for free!! This is a completely customizable and powerful app that can work with any sound effect/file (yes, you can upload your own files into the program)! You can use it with your existing sound system (including self-powered speakers...by wired or bluetooth connections), by touch, with midi keyboard (full-control without touching the iOs device), and hundreds of sound effects are included with the purchase of a once-a-year subscription!
After you set up your show/soundboard, you save the entire RAFX Soundboard or "show" in a cloud service, or e-mail the file to yourself or collaborators on the project that havre RAFX. This way, if you have to reset the iOs device or get a new one, you can easily upload the file again and be up and running in a few seconds. Try doing that with a computer, its software, and additional hardware components...you've all witnessed that pre-show nightmare at least one time in your careers!
Save thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours working on additional equipment to deliver high-quality, non-compressed sound files in any performance situation.
